what is EDI?
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the automated, computer-to-computer exchange of standard electronic documents (such as invoices, purchase orders, etc.) between business partners over a secure, standardized connection.
What is X12?
X12 is a common standard used in the USA for EDI documents.
How does it work?
Segments’ platform converts your XML (or any other document) into an X12 document in order to help you to communicate with your business partner.
Also, the platform can translate X12 document for you, so you can get a clear picture of your business partners’ request / demand.
Segment’s EDI platform provides all aspects of the EDI process, connecting all your back-end systems, ERP, accounting, marketing, and more – directly to the supply chain of your business partner.
